Q: Truck door not closing

asked by on

My truck door will not close.

Many times, if the door will not close or latch it is because of the latch assembly. Most of the time it is because the latch was moved while the door was open. You can check the latch and see if it is open or closed. If it is closed you would need to pull on the door handle and then move the latch to the opened position. If the latch is in the correct position and the door will not close then the latch may need to be replaced. A mechanic would typically remove the door panel and check the latch assembly to see if it is loose or misaligned or simply bad. If you plan on having this done, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic will be able to inspect your doors and make the repairs to have them in working order again.
